What's important to avoid is the blog postings being only reporting of
"conclusions". They also need to be invitations to participate in the
discussions. Yes, the mailing list, gerrit and meeting logs have some
of the ongoing discussions but often, without a nudge, people won't

If, in fact, improved engagement between the TC and everyone else is
desired then a lot of effort is going to be required (from both
sides of the engagement).

I'm not trying to suggest that the TC is trying to keep people in
the dark, rather that it always takes more effort than anyone would
like to make sure things are lit.
